Using the Contently API

Modified on Wed, 01 Mar 2023 at 11:03 AM

You can use Contently's API to build your own custom integration. This integration allows you to pull data from the platform to your chosen CMS and you can choose to map that data however you'd like on your end. The data includes whatever content and images are in your Contently story and you have the ability to use those how you wish when you receive the data via the custom CMS integration.


If you’re using Contently’s API to build your own custom integration, follow the steps below to add a Contently API integration to your Contently publication. 


If you're building a Custom CMS integration, please follow these instructions instead.

Note: You will need to be an org admin in order to complete these steps. 


  1. Log into Contently and navigate to the Integrations page in your Publication settings.


2. To view all of the integrations for your organization, click the "All publications" option in the publication dropdown.


3. Click the "Add Integration" dropdown to add Contently API credentials to your publication.


4. Enter a name for your integration. This name will be used to distinguish your integrations from each other.


5. Choose which publications you want to access from this integration. You can share this integration across multiple publications. Click "Save."


6. After you click "Save," we will generate your API key and show you a link to our API documentation to help you get started. We'll also email this information to you so that you—or someone else on your team—can start working with our API.


If you'd like to get a jump start, you can find our Contently API Documentation here

Note: Your new integration will now appear in the list on your Integrations Page in Contently. Visit this page to edit your integration. You can always access your install guide and API key from this page.
